The new game from Vladimir Suchy is called Underwater Cities is for 1 to 4 players, for the age 12+ and it takes 30 – 40 min/1 player. During the game play players represent the most powerful brains in the World, which were nominated for establishing the best „working“ underwater areas usable for human living because of Earth overpopulated. In the game players use the new boardgame principle, which is called „card placement“.
Three coloured cards are placed to the edge of the main board, resp. into 3 x 5 slots, which are illustrated here. These slots are also coloured. It is better for players to put cards into slots of the same colour. Then they can take both actions and advantages – the action depicted in the slot on the main board and also the advantage of the card. Actions and advantages allow players intake of raw materials, possibility of building and „upgrading“ city domes, tunnels and production buildings as farms, desalination device and laboratories on their own underwater area, move their marker on the initiative track, which is important for pla yer´s order in next turn, then activation of player´s A-cards and last but not least intake of the cards – the „special“ ones and also „basic“ ones for better decision possibilities during the game play. All of nearly 220 cards – special and basic – are divided into 4 types according to the way and time of use. Underwater areas are planned to be double-sided. These facts give players many opportunities how to achieve VPs and finally win.
